    Exclamation WARNING -- Please Read -- Things NOT to do on your Thrive

    OK folks. I am seeing a trend here and I thought I should post this for all to read.
    1. Do NOT load ROM Manager on your Thrive! It is not compatable with the Thrive and can cause you issues.
    2. Do NOT try to load any version of ClockWorkMod onto your device unless it is the one posted here by one of the Devs, Moderators, etc. (or a member you know and trust)! Loading an incompatable version of ClockWorkMod can cause some really bad things.
    3. Do NOT use ClockWorkMod to format your SDcard!
    4. Do NOT use ClockWorkMod to partition your SDcard!
    If you do any of the above, you can and probably will BRICK your device. We will not be able to help you fix it. The only thing you will be able to do is send it back to Toshiba so they can reflash the device with a low level flashing tool. Consider yourself warned. If you are uncertain about what you are doing, please ask the forum. There are a lot of smart people on here that can advise you. Just because an app is available on the Market and can be installed, does not mean it is safe for you to use. Any of the tools for root or ClockWorkMod or recovery or ROMs or anything simular are not universal and can cause real bad issues for you. It is much better to be safe than sorry. So, please ask befor jumping onto any of these type of tools. It may work fine on your phone, but this is not a phone and it is not running Gingerbread for an OS.

    Thanks DalePl, this should be required reading for anyone who wishes to take the rooting step.

    Yes... don't be like me who tried to "Partition the External SD card" option in CWM (advanced menu) to end up with a brick. (This happened yesterday, I missed all the warnings on the forum) I have to wait til I get back to the states to send it back to Toshiba (if they will even take it...). So devastated! Wish there was a way to figure out how to do the low level flashing that they would have done...

    (The other hilarious thing is that I also almost lost all the data on the flash drive because I thought it was smart to first move all the data to the internal drive of the tablet as "backup". Good thing photorec on linux could recover most of the images/videos)

    All I wanted was to be able to get write access to my micro sd card from the tablet so I could flash the new ROM too.

    *** Like he said, don't partition/flash the sdcard from CWM!!!!

    I have to admit that I will miss rom manager. It is one of the most useful utilities on the android market, which is why I purchased the premium version. The developer is very helpful, responsive And friendly.

    Yep, but those XDA Devs are snubbing the Thrive, so fooey on them.

    I've had Motorola phones, so ROM manager is useless to me on anything but the OG Droid.

    Hey guys I emailed the developer of rom manager and very nicely requested that he add a warning about its incompatibilty with the Thrive. Hope that might help someone who doesn't read this forum, from downloading the app, not knowing what it will do.

    It really is not ROM Manager per say, it is ClockWorkMod. Rom Manager will try to install ClockWorkMod, but I think it will fail. If it does install, it will be the wrong one.
